Also I will tell you about an amazing project, a mobile architecture one, the Allroads.pt :)I’m already a pro at Road Trips, but those serious ones. André and I do this for years, and although we are planning something big, a few weeks ago we decided to do something we do every year, our portguese coast for unlimited time, and for us doing the coast is literally all the coast. We started in Caminha (way on the north) and went to Vila Real de Santo António, where we continued to the spanish coast.
Forget the daily beauty routine, there is no bathroom. Forget the long baths, the thousand outfits, the value rings and bracelets, the eating healthy thing. It’s hard to keep a good an healthy diet when we spent more than eight hours straight every time a car. When we stopped at McDonald’s just to use the bathroom I feel some discomfort so we always end up consuming any thing, like french fries or a cheeseburger. Forget the booked hotels and the white sheets, a road trip to serious sleep in the car. Dinner on cliffs to see for sunsets. We were hours and hours in the middle of nowhere to see the starry sky as almost never see during the year. We wake up not knowing that the beach we go, there are no plans, not the destination, just go. Of course not everything is fantastic on a road trip or when we go camping, but it’s amazing you have to try. Enjoy our coast, travel in a car prepared for an unforgettable holiday, make unique moments guys. I’ve been and I being in the best hotels, I am fortunate to be able to have hyper comfortable vacation whenever I want, but I do not dispense the back pain from drive 8 hours straight. Do not dispense the absence of high heels, foundation, network television, so much that we find it so useful and for a few days, their absence becomes amazing to us realize how good it’s just being in wonderful places with our man.
But this trip was so special because another reason too. Beyond all this? For the first time we were in a van built by André. We were tired of criticizing the construction of motor caravans, they are very ugly outside had serious flaws inside in terms of functionality. As we have said here several times, architecture is the most transversal jobs (and it’s a lifestyle too) that there is a school of good taste that can be applied to as many areas than you can imagine. Bring the architecture for our travel was a dream that these holidays come true. Bring architecture with us, not behind us but in our car was a unique experience. The best thing is that now anyone can have this experience.
